At this point they work as sunglasses. On the contrary, if they are not exposed to ultraviolet light they continue to be transparent and any change takes place. So, when they are darkened, they can have their natural appearance again if the intensity of UV starts to change, becoming completely transparent with the absence of sunlight. With regard tophotochromic sunglasses, it is important to take into account that they have been designed for outdoor use and they are not as clear as the previous lenses are.
